Chester Food and Drink Festival promises so much more than before

The Chester Food and Drink festival is the largest of its type held anywhere in the UK, and this year there will be with over 150 Food and Drink Exhibitors on show and 30,000 people expected over the 3 days.

Headline chefs from the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 feature with Paul Rankin, Chris Bavin and Jun Tanaka as well as the best chefs from around the region over 3 days of free cooking demonstrations on the stage.

There is a chance for 40 festival visitors to become a judge in the annual “Sausage of the Festival” competition and many places around the festival to sit and enjoy everything that is on offer.

Harlech Foods are providing free adult cooking classes, where their chefs will be teaching adults how to prepare meals, special knife skills, tricks of the trade and of course the opportunity to eat what you have prepared.

Sam Elliott, Head Demonstrator at Harlech said “ This is a fabulous opportunity for us to show people how much fun cooking can be and how easy it is to prepare fresh, good, healthy food. We know people love to cook once they get the confidence and our classes are all about building that confidence.”

Festival Organiser, Briony Wilson said – in our 18th year we just want our customers to have the best food and drink and the opportunity to get involved in every aspect of the industry and with the Harlech Food Classes they get the chance to learn from the experts.”

She continued “We think this year’s event delivers on every level. We have over 150 exhibitors with foods from every part of the globe, we have the best chefs on our stages and we have more customer participation events than ever before. We have a great live music stage where families can chill and lots and lots of seating areas for people to simply enjoy great food and drink. In my opinion this is the best £20 for four hours of fun for a family of four that money can buy and it’s the biggest event of its type being staged anywhere in the UK this Easter.”

The festival takes place at Chester Racecourse from the 31st March to 2nd April and online tickets are just £6 for adults with children under 12 free.
